In my previous blog I mentioned that I was in for a busy few days and that Ann & I were having a stall at the Abington Antiques & Collectors Fair in Northampton.

Poor old Ann had a nasty headcold and it was touch and go whether she would be well enough to do it but like the trooper she is she pitched up at 8am with tissues to the ready.  Just as well as she had the cloths for the table......

We have not had a stall at this particular fair this year and were mobbed when we got there by the dealers as we always have lots of lovely vintage goodies that the other stall holders don't seem to sell.  Have you ever done a car boot sale where the dealers are standing over to you whilst you unpack, well this was the same thing.  Mind you I am not moaning as managed to do half my sales in the first few minutes.......and they did not knock me down....

One of our favourite sellers at the fair is Julie who sells lots of lovely vintage jewellery and vanity items
Here she is busy chatting to one of her customers.  Both Ann and I noticed some lovely old milliner's flowers on her stall and we both rushed to purchase some.

The faded colours are just wonderful and I am really pleased with how they look displayed.  I also found a little green glass art deco glass vase to put them in which matched another that I had - so now I have a pair - great.

If you want to see pictures of our stall please check out Ann's blog Vintage At The Corner House which you can find on my side bar.

We handed out lots of flyers for our forthcoming Vintage Fair on the 7th November and it looks like we are getting a lot of interest.  Whilst we were there two of the ladies that have booked stalls  came and introduced themselves - it is so nice to put a face to a name.  Welcome on board ladies.

  1. I love vintage millinery. I Was lucky enough to find a small basket of it a few weeks ago and have to sort through it all now.

    Good luck with your preparations - I am sure your day will be a sucess!
